In the wellness area you can end the day comfortably. Here, as well as in the adjoining relaxation room, the biological philosophy of the house runs through and stretches from the breakfast buffet to the end of the day.
Equipped with natural materials, the old wood used provides a lot of warmth and cosiness. From the mountain streams of our valley come the stream stones, which we used to build our waterfall and the Kneipp facility.

Cuisine regional & good
Already in the morning our extensive "farmer breakfast" with products from our own agriculture expects you. In the evening the kitchen team of the Gehwolfalm will spoil you with culinary delicacies from Austria. Our varied cuisine offers the choice between several menus. Lean back, let the many impressions of the day pass in review and enjoy our exquisite wines and spirits in front of the open fire.
After the meal you can relax with a drink at the bar. Hüttenwirt Rupert Gschwandtl provides entertainment with his "Quetsch", Teufelsgeige and funny G´stanzln.
We"re going for organic.
Due to increasing health awareness and the trend towards healthy nutrition, the demand for organic products is also growing. When preparing meals, we attach particular importance to fresh and regional products. In addition, we mainly use beef from our own agriculture, which we run in the valley. In 1995 we changed over to "BIO" and process our meat products directly on the farm. The bread is baked on the Gehwolfalm according to an old family recipe.
We hope to welcome you soon as our guests and to spoil you!
